To establish a policy governing the cancellation of classes unrelated to weather. (For the College weather policy, see C-5.)
Except in unusual circumstances, instructors are expected to meet all classes on the days and times assigned. Illness is usually the only reason for a last-minute cancellation.
- Faculty members who must miss a class for any reason must seek prior approval from the School Director. Cancellations incorporated into syllabi must also be approved by the School Director prior to the cancellation date.
- Arrangements for coverage cannot be informally arranged by faculty. All arrangements must be communicated to the staff assistants in sufficient time to make plans to cope with any potential problems.
- In case of emergency, notification should be made to the School Director, Administrative Assistant or other staff member and all students.
- Responsibility for notifying students of class cancellation rests with the faculty.
